Turbine Aeroplane Structures and Systems covers (by ATA chapter) the construction and operation of the various systems in complex turbine powered aircraft from their basic layout to their operation and maintenance needs from the perspective of the aircraft mechanic. Systems are covered by ATA chapters and include the general structures of transport category aircraft and various systems such as electrical, fuel, flight controls, hydraulics, etc) and also including modern on-board electronics such as on-board maintenance computers, cabin systems, and information systems. You will learn by understanding concepts, not just rote memorization and you will learn to understand and apply this knowledge in the MRO of flightline environment.

This book is fully compliant as EASA Part 66 module 11a for the B1 license and has been given approvals by numerous EASA based civil aviation authorities.
